Accessibility Arrangements

The SEN and Disability Act 2001 extended the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA) to cover education. 

The Governing Body duties towards disabled pupils, under Part 4 of the DDA include:

  • not to treat disabled pupils less favourably for a reason related to their disability;

  • to make reasonable adjustments for disabled pupils, so that they are not at a substantial disadvantage;

  • to plan to increase access to education for disabled pupils.                                                                                                               

  This plan sets out the proposals of the Governing Body of the school to increase access to education for disabled pupils       required by the planning duties in the DDA:

  • increasing the extent to which disabled pupils can participate in the school curriculum;
  • improving the environment of the school to increase the extent to which disabled pupils can take advantage of education and associated services;

  • improving the delivery to disabled pupils of information which is provided in writing for pupils who are not disabled.

It is a requirement that the school’s accessibility plan is resourced, implemented and reviewed and revised every three years. 

Please see our Accessibility Plan below.
